View Full Version : [ubuntu] Firefox/Mozilla Flash files stop downloading at 64MB, yet continue to play

First, this is an inquiry for informational purposes only. I would never want to download a flash video without permission from my owner.

No longer stored in /tmp, and now in .mozilla/firefox/"profile".default/cache, these flash files seem to stop downloading at 64MB, yet in the browser, the video continues playing, despite the actual size of the entire file which is much larger than 64MB. To where are they going? Are they being fragmented into tarballs? They must be stored somewhere; or else how could they continue playing? I guess I'll start a traffic monitor to see if they are still buffering.
